The London Men’s Collections for next fall and winter are well underway, and it’s an event we love for its mix of classic British tailoring and trendier designers. Each feeds off the other in often-exciting ways. So maybe it stands to reason that Hardy Amies—a Savile Row house founded in 1946—is absolutely killing it, with a near-perfect line of suits, eveningwear and casual gear that straddles the line between then and now. Below are videos of our favorite shows; we’ll be adding to them until things wrap up on January 12, with slideshows to follow.
Hardy Amies Best in show. The 68-year-old house is leading the pack with impeccable tailoring in modern styles and eye-catching fabrics: Double-breasted suits, hooded outerwear, James Bondian tuxedos.
